Your Health Starts At Home

We cannot stress enough that your spiritual, mental, and physical health always starts with your surroundings, and where you generally spend your most time is in your home. That means that your home must be accommodating, comfortable, and generally a place where you are able to relax, unwind, and feel truly yourself. Most importantly is your bedroom, as this is where you will sleep and subconsciously take in all of your surroundings.

There are many aspects of your home that you should pay attention to when it comes to your health. For example, you want to pay attention to the colors that you use and the lighting throughout the house as these factors can have a strong impact on your mood as you sit and absorb your environment. You may also want to consider the furniture that you choose as well as how you arrange it. You don’t want too much clutter, which will make you feel cramped and disorganized. At the same time however, having too much space will make you feel lonely and empty inside.

It is also important to pay attention to the temperature of your home. This varies from person to person as with many things in life, but in general living in cold can be good for your physical health but bad for your mental health. Living in a warm room can do just the opposite, making you extremely comfortable and happy, but if you have high blood pressure it can potentially exacerbate problems. There are many methods of making home warm and nice, but among our favorites are (obviously) using your home’s heating system, or by installing some sort of satellite heater. The main thing that you need to do is figure out what your optimal comfort range is, and make sure you maintain that throughout the day.

On top of everything mentioned so far, it can be very helpful to maintain potted plants. They not only act as wonderful aesthetic pleasures, but taking care of a plant can be very good for your mental health as it is very soothing and imparts a sense of responsibility. Of course you can’t forget that they are consuming carbon dioxide and making oxygen, which is very good for your physical health if you are breathing higher quality air on a daily basis. Some people even find pleasure in talking to their plants, as they feel that the plants can feel the sound waves and actually have an emotional response to it themselves. This might seem a bit crazy, but there is some evidence that it could be rooted in a distant level of truth.

If you follow these guide lines then congratulations, you are in good shape! Just make sure to keep up these good habits and you’ll be on your way. If you don’t, then take action today and see how much of an impact these small changes can have on your life.
